where can i get a security guard license where i have to go to get a nys application and also where do i go to get fingerprint include one nys/one federal. i don't have a driving license i have a learner permit or a security guard i have a high school diploma.
-As previously mentioned, the 8-hour pre-assignment course must be completed before licensing.
-within 90-days of beginning work, the 16-hour on-the-job training course must be completed.
-every year, beginning with the year after licensing, the 8-hour annual in-service course must be taken.

You forgot to mention that any OUT of STATE Certifications will not apply in the state. The state will not even take out of State LAW ENFORCEMENT Certification to apply for your 8 hour or Armed License...The guy at NYS License laughed when I asked...very professional???

If you have your 8 and 16 hour courses, then the only thing that comes next is for you to apply for the security license. You have to send the following to the NYS Department of State:

- completed NYS application for security guard
- a set of your fingerprints
- an original copy of the 8 hour pre-assignment certificate
- $36.00 money order to NYS Department of State
- $105.75 money order to L-1 Enrollment Services (NYS's fingerprint vendor)
SEND EVERYTHING TO THE NYS DEPARTMENT OF STATE

Please note that until 12/31/09 there are two ways to have the fingerprints done. You can have the traditional inked fingerprints taken or you can go to a site operated by the State's fingerprint vendor, L-1 Enrollment Services, and have the fingerprints taken electronically. After 1/1/10 the fingerprints will have to be done electronically. Go to the Department of State web site for a link to L-1 Enrollment Services and their locations.

You will have to take security officer course for New York State 8hr and 16hr certificates, and take your fingerprints once you have them mail everthing to Albany, NY along with the neccessary fees.

Security Instructor in New York, New York

If I understand your comment correctly, you are saying that you had a NYS Security Guard license, but that it expired. If this is the case, then whether or not you need to reapply depends on how long ago the licensed expired. NYS Security Licenses are good for two years, and every two years they must be renewed (NYS feee for renewal is $25.00). Once your license expires you can no longer legally work, but NYS gives a 6-month grace period to renew the license. Once the license is expired for more than six months, however, NYS wipes the slate clean and you have to reapply by going through the entire original application process. The 8-hour pre-assignment class cerificates never expire, so if you did have to reapply, you can still use your pre-assignment certificate regardless of how many years ago you took the course.

The certificates for the 8 and 16 hour courses never expire. Even if you took the course 15-years ago you can still use it, but if your license expired for more than 6-months you have to go through the whole application process again.
